It’s the connection between you and the fish, and if it fails, you fail. Line size, style and construction should be your first consideration, and should be matched to the waters you’re fishing and techniques you’ll be using. In clear water, many anglers consider a fluorocarbon line to be essential. When fishing heavy cover or flipping bass jigs to vegetation, a heavier copolymer may be best. The best fishing lines incorporate abrasion-resistance, strength and invisibility under water to provide you with a sure, effective connection to the lure, and hopefully the fish of a lifetime.
